Information on W6TRW Field Day

Field Day SignHi, all –

It’s summertime, and the annual ARRL Field Day is here again!  Please join us on 27-28 June at Friendship Park in San Pedro.  There will be lots of opportunities to learn about radio technology and radio operation firsthand, and to get on the air!  It’s also a great time to meet the other W6TRW club members, so don’t miss out!

We are going to operate as class 7A (7 stations, generator power) as we traditionally have done.  We will have several HF bands, digital modes, VHF-UHF stations, the Get-On-The-Air station, and we will be trying for a satellite contact.

Please see the links below for more Field Day information:

Please reply to me, or to our W6TRW web page contact link, to ask for more info or to get involved.  We really want to see you at Field Day and we hope you will get some excellent experience.  You can also contact Ray, KD6IGI, to coordinate or volunteer for any part of Field Day, and you can contact Jason,KD6ELS if you want to help with setup on Friday 26 June or teardown on Sunday 28 June.
